64 Ave Widening: 184 Street to Fraser Highway
The City has plans to widen 64 Avenue from 184 Street to Fraser Highway.
The City plans to provide improvements on 64 Avenue for an eight-block portion between 184 Street and Fraser Highway. The road will be widened from a single lane road in each direction to a 4-lane, median-separated arterial with multi-modal facilities for pedestrians, cyclists and transit users.
The project is anticipated to generally consist of:
- Widening to 2 travel lanes in each direction with curb and gutters
- Addition of separated one-way asphalt cycle tracks on both sides
- Construction of left turn bays and a raised landscaped median
- New pedestrian signals at 64 Avenue/186 Street and 64 Avenue/190 Street
- New concrete sidewalks on at least one side of 64 Avenue
- Sidewalk construction on east side of 188 Street from 60 Avenue to 64 Avenue
- Improved bus stops
- Enhanced street and pedestrian lighting
- Intersection enhancements
- A street tree utility strip
- Improved pavement condition and drainage works
Improvements on 64 Avenue are included in the Engineering Department’s 10-Year Servicing Plan.
Why 64 Avenue?
64 Avenue is part of Translink’s Major Road Network (MRN) and a key link between three communities: the City of Surrey, the Township of Langley, and the Corporation of Delta.
Currently, 64 Avenue from 184 Street to Fraser Highway is 2-lane arterial road generally including one westbound travel lane and one eastbound travel lane, with gravel shoulders and typically no formalized curb from 184 Street to 200m east of 190 Street. 64 Avenue services the Cloverdale and East Clayton areas of Surrey and serves as an important east-west connector from Highway 15/176 Street to Fraser Highway.
Based on 2014 traffic data for this portion of 64 Avenue, the average annual daily traffic (AADT) were 17,800 to 19,500 AADT exceeding the threshold capacity of 15,0000 AADT for a two-lane arterial road. Although part of the MRN, this section of 64 Avenue is not a designated truck route in Surrey. It is served by multiple transit routes: 364, 395, and C70, all of which are ultimately planned to have service levels increase up to Frequent Transit Network (FTN) levels which is at least every 15 minutes, 7 days a week, 15 hours a day.
Ultimately, the City intends to deliver a multi-phase program of widening and providing multimodal infrastructure along the entire 64 Avenue corridor from 120 Street (Delta border) through Newton and the Cloverdale area to 196 Street (Township of Langley border). Upgrading this important east-west link will support residents’ safe and comfortable road use as well as future growth while reducing travel times.
What will this project achieve?
Improvements along this section will:
- reduce congestion and delays
- support more trips made by sustainable travel modes, improving comfort and safety for people walking, cycling and taking transit
- meet growing capacity needs
- improve pavement condition
Construction is currently scheduled to begin in 2020 is expected to take about 12 months.
The project is now in the detailed design phase. Proposed designs for improvements were shared at an Open House on October 23, 2019.
